we are committed.
Stefanutti Stocks has established a culture of investing in people. We are committed to this organisational value as it provides the framework for personal growth and sustainable development of our employees, colleagues and peers, as well as the local communities within which we operate.
We are incredibly passionate and committed to our sustainability initiatives, and the people, businesses and organisations we partner with and with whom we often establish long-term relationships with. A few of our more recent skills development, socio-economic development, enterprise development and other sustainability initiatives are detailed below.
For more in-depth case-studies, information or background on what we do, please view our annual Sustainability Reports, or for a historical snapshot of our initiatives, please view the Sizimisele, a magazine published by the group until 2019.
Our culture of investing in people provides the framework for personal growth and development of our employees, our colleagues and our peers. At the same time, our people are given the tools to take responsibility and ownership.
By creating an employer brand with which people strive to be associated, we attract talent that is highly skilled and energised by the challenges and opportunities that we provide. Our remuneration packages are very competitive, however, we place emphasis on performance-related benefits as well as the opportunity for individual growth.
Our HR service to all Stefanutti Stocks’ employees focuses on ensuring employee well-being, training, induction, recognition and reward and leadership development, in order to foster a culture based on superior performance which will enable all of us to realise our full potential.

Stefanutti Stocks strives to enable viable B-BBEE suppliers to participate in the main stream of the economy by facilitating access to Stefanutti Stocks’ procurement activities pertaining to our procurement needs and in line with our project requirements.
We encourage current non-compliant B-BBEE suppliers to become B-BBEE compliant and to adopt a supportive culture when engaging and/or doing business with black empowered, EME or QSE suppliers.
In pursuit of our group’s preferential procurement objectives, and because small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) play a crucial role in job creation and economic growth in South Africa, we consider B-BBEE-compliant vendors who are able to guarantee performance, quality and safety standards while delivering competitive prices. We encourage our vendors to be a B-BBEE contributor level six or better.
Our group’s strategy is to foster strong working relationships with competent black-owned companies and to develop them in a tangible and meaningful way to ensure that these companies become sustainable while increasing their capacity to take on larger and more complex projects.
